    • He described himself as a yeoman of St Mary in the Castle, Sussex. He left 10 shillings to the poor of Crowhurst. He left the copyhold of property called Blackwells in Crowhurst to his second wife, Mary. He left £20 to his son, William, as payment plus interest for the legacy left him by his grandfather William Wimble, and a further £20, both payable when he was 21. He left £20 to his youngest son, John when 21. He left the residue of his estate to be divided between his daughters Mercy and Anne when they were 21 or married. His executors were his wife, Mary and son, William. He appointed as overseers, his brother in law Nicholas Weston (husband of his sister, Mercy) and "my Loveing kinsman John Fuller of Hollington". He stated that the profits from his freehold land should be used to support his children until they were 21 - presumably after then it would pass to his eldest son, William.
